MAT: Consultation and approvals


Keeping you informed is our priority

We are committed to incorporating local knowledge into the Merritt Area Transmission (MAT) Project and want to understand your perspectives and points of view. We will continue to provide information and respond to enquiries as project construction continues.

Open houses and neighbourhood meetings

Our first community open house was held in October 2010. At that open house we shared the information that we had gathered and asked for your feedback on the alternatives being considered for MAT.

Subsequent neighbourhood meetings for residents living east of the Merritt Substation, along Forksdale, Springbank, and Irvine avenues, were held in May and June 2012.

See the materials provided at these neighbourhood meetings.

First Nations consultation

Our Aboriginal Relations and Negotiations department provides opportunities for you to directly engage with us and notify us of potential impacts the MAT project may have on your interests.
